SCI staff act as “Congressmen for the day” during Scott’s preparations, asking questions from each Member’s point of view

Having recently returned from an elephant safari in Zimbabwe, Scott has an in-depth knowledge and on the ground experience regarding the elephant populations of sub-Saharan Africa.  Scott has worked for several weeks now with the staff of the Washington, D.C. office of SCI preparing his testimony and getting ready for the significant undertaking that is testifying before Congress.  Scott’s personal testament to the importance of hunters to the overall management, and specifically the funding of wildlife conservation is one of the keys to successfully overturning this importation ban. Scott will define why this imposed ban will do nothing but cause irreparable harm to elephant populations in Zimbabwe and Tanzania.

  1. Wildlife Conservation is a science and we hire scientists to manage it fore us, and it has worked well sense the 1930’s when we had all but eliminated all the game in this country. Natures way of balancing is to start a despise or Pham on to spread through the herds. sometimes 1% may survive to start to re-plennish the herd as the ground makes it’s comeback. SCI DIRECTOR: RMEF FOUNDING MEMBER. 40 years in wildlife conservation.
